Series: Star Wars Evolutions
Release Date: 2008
Comments: This figure, and it’s two companion figures were based on the 2008 LucasArt’s multi-console game – ‘The Force Unleashed’ which takes placed in the years between “Revenge of the Sith” and “A New Hope”. You play the game as Galen Marek, a secret apprentice to Lord Vader. Hence the name of this Evolutions set.
About three weeks ago I covered Galen Marek as the secret apprentice. In the course of the game, you choose the light or the dark path; each with its own final visual for your character. Last week we looked at the light side, today we go Sith. This figure is the most visually interesting of the three. One of the great things about the Sith is that designers have essentially free reign. What you end up with is a fairly creepy figure who is unlike most everything else in your collection. And since the Sith persona of the apprentice will be featured in ‘The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition” this figure is a must have. Only way you could lose is if there’s a new, improved figure on the horizon. But as of today, HASBRO’s mum on what the next “The Force Unleashed” figures will be.
